Seen in cross section, the base body is asymmetric relative to rotation about the axis of rotation (8) at the height of the cutting corner (16A,B). The cross section of the base body is simultaneously designed having symmetrical spacing from the main cutting edges (14A,B). The drill tip (2) is in particular designed as an interchangeable modular part of a modularly designed drill tip (5). A drill base body (4) in which the drill tip (2) can be inserted can therefore in turn be designed symmetrically.

  • Publication number: 20110097168
    Abstract: A boring tool has a receiving part implemented as a borer body and a front part implemented as a borer head, which extend along a central axis and can be removably fastened to one another via driver connection. The driver connection has at least two coupling pairs which are separate from one another and are disposed eccentrically relative to the central axis. Each coupling pair is formed by interlocking coupling elements, namely a receiving pocket and a driver pin. The coupling elements have an asymmetrical cross-sectional area and widen with increasing distance to the central axis. Through this design, a reliable transmission of high torques is achieved with lower strains of the borer body in the area of the driver connection. Simultaneously, an automatic centering of the two tool parts to one another is performed.

  • Publication number: 20110091296
    Abstract: A three-way indexable throwaway tip for deep-hole drilling can be used as a center cutting blade body for a drill head in either whole cutting type or uncut core break-off type applications. The throwaway tip for deep-hole drilling is of a thick plate body having a three-fold symmetry with three cutting sections that are rotationally spaced apart at a central angle of 120 degrees. When mounted on a drill head, one cutting section of the throwaway tip faces a drilling direction. The forward facing blade edge of that cutting section includes an inner blade edge shorter in blade length and an outer blade edge longer in blade length forming an apex. The outer blade edge is composed of two consecutive blade edge portions of a peak-side outer blade edge portion having a smaller outer blade edge angle and a corner-side outer blade edge portion having a larger outer blade edge angle.

    Abstract: A rotary cutting tool that is composed of a tool shank with at least one chucking groove or chip flute and one exchangeable cutting insert. At the tip of the shank a recess for accommodating the cutting insert is provided. The tool shank, on its circumference, has a limb with a bearing surface that is inclined relative to the tool axis and that corresponds to a likewise inclined bearing surface on a wing of the cutting insert. The inclination of the bearing surfaces produces an axial force that retains the cutting insert on the tool shank.

  • Publication number: 20100322727
    Abstract: A drilling tool of the loose top type includes a basic body having two bendable branches having inner support surfaces that are resiliently pressable against side contact surfaces of a replaceable loose top. The mounting of the loose top is affected by turning-in from an initial position to an operative end position. An abutting edge along each side contact surface then bends out the branches and subjects the branches to a spring force that reaches a maximum in a dead position so as to then decrease somewhat up to the operative end position. During the final phase of the rotary motion, the operator obtains, in a tactile and/or auditory way, confirmation of the loose top indeed reaching its operative end position.

    Abstract: A drill of the loose top type, which is composed of a basic body and a replaceable loose top. In the front end of the basic body, a jaw is formed, which is delimited by two elastically bendable branches and an intermediate axial support surface, and in which the loose top can be securely pinched by inner support surfaces of the branches being resiliently pressed against side contact surfaces of the loose top. The two side contact surfaces of the loose top extend rearward from clearance surfaces that are included in the front end of the loose top. By forming the diametrical dimension between opposite side contact surfaces greater nearer the front end of the loose top, the branches of the jaw securely pinch the loose top in the area of the front ends thereof, where the branches have their maximal bending capacity.
